Talk on Dark Energy Survey, DES

DES is a huge imaging survey optimized for searching for galaxy clusters.  The main driver of DES is to constrain the Dark Energy contents of our Universe using four different methods. Our team is mainly involved in the experiments regarding clusters of galaxies from the optimisation and evaluation of cluster finders all the way through to measuring the cosmological parameters.

In four presentations we will introduce this work to you. The presentations are:

Luiz da Costa (~30min): Overview of DES
Christophe Benoist (~15min): Clusters and cosmology
Ricardo Ogando (~15min): Cluster detection in DES
Lisbeth Fogh Grove (~15min): Other aspects of cluster surveys
